But, after all, it's worth shopping in Freeport Fashion Outlet? The answer is yes. However, there are some tips. One of them is to make a list of what you want to buy and research in advance the values of these products in Brazil to see if it pays off. In addition, it is worth dedicating good hours to explore each place in search of offers. The famous “beating leg”, that is, going into all stores in search of promotions can yield great finds.

Among the products worth checking out at Freeport are perfumes, which can reach 60% off at stores like Perfumes & Companhia. Articles from sports stores such as Adidas, Nike and Puma, for example, are also offered at prices below those practiced in Brazil. Clothes from well-known labels such as Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Diesel, Mango, among others, also have interesting discounts.

For those who love cool and contemporary pieces, Karl Lagerfeld offers clothes, bags and wallets in the best rock chic style, starting at €59. Also bet on coats and winter clothes, whose value in Brazil is usually much more salty. For those who like shoes, for example, at the Vans store you can find sneakers from €10, as well as at the Converse All Star store, which offers discounts of up to 70%.

In addition, foreigners such as Brazilians can use the TAX Free, that is, have part of their spending in Europe refunded from taxes, thus making purchases even cheaper. The refund is 12% of the purchase amount, provided that the minimum spend is €61.35.
